Los Angeles - Channing Tatum is a "high functioning alcoholic".

The 22 Jump Street star admits he drinks too much, and he uses it as a way for him to escape the rigours of everyday life.

He told GQ magazine: "I probably drink too much, you know. My wife [Jenna Dewan], that's what she bought into... I'm probably a pretty high-functioning, I guess, you know, I would say, alcoholic, I guess.

"There's probably a tendency to escape. I equate it to creativity, and I definitely equate it to having a good time."

The hunky 34-year-old also admitted to another, less dangerous, vice in watching TV show The Biggest Loser, where a group of overweight people compete to see who can lose the most pounds fastest.

He added: "I really do love it. It's terrible and it's bad, but I really do think it's because I have an inner fat kid in me.

"I can completely lose myself into just absolutely satisfying things - a really amazing cheeseburger, a pizza, good fries, a beer. I enjoy being comfortable and eating whatever the hell I like."

Channing also admits to having his own imaginary friend when he was younger.

He said: "His name was Boy. I think I just lived in an imaginary world. I was always playing war in the woods, people are chasing me... I wasn't doing it because I was desperate for friends. I had friends."
